This weekend I was lucky enough to ride on the abbreviated redux of the Hidden Gems Tour held in May. I started on the May tour but my a rear tire puncture forced me to leave the tour. Saturday's tour was again led by John Steere, president of Berkeley Partners for Parks (one of the sponsors of the May tour) and avid Berkeley historian! Along the way I took photographs and made notes; the photo map below is one product of my and (John's) observations. There are numerous mapping technologies available to neighborhood geographers. I used Pixagogo for the photo map (below), but am using Map My Ride to develop a route map. The latter will be appended to this post as soon as it is completed. Other photo mapping tools include Wayfaring (used to developed the Solar Panels in Berkeley map), Flickr, Picassa, and Platial. Map My Ride (Run; Walk)and Gmaps Pedometer are the only route-based mapping tools I have encountered.
